Janssen Powers

This (6-minute) short film directed by Janssen Powers (born in Seattle and based in Brooklyn, NYC) tells the story of a woman: 

As an Alaska Native born into a nomadic tribe, Lena understands what it takes to survive. Over the years she has battled hunger and extreme cold, fighting for the survival of her family and their way of life. But today, living alone in a small cabin deep in the Alaskan wilderness, Lena Charley is faced with a new set of challenges. At 88 years of age, struggling to walk and unable to communicate with others in her native tongue, most of the world she knew as a child has completely disappeared. And yet still, Lena remains unwavering in her ability to accept her present circumstances as if she had chosen them… For Lena, finding happiness is as simple as going to the right.
